Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir/Ma'am Lens error is because of several reasons and there are several solutions to fix up the Lens ErrorYou have tried One of the most common solution which Fix up the lens error like lens error is solved by removing the batteries and replacing it with a new set of fully charge ones, or Lens error may also solved by compressed air canister to blow around the lens area. This will result in the sand or dust particles to be blown out of the area between the lens and the barrel. Or Lens error also mostly solves by Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on.
You have tried all these but but problem is still there so problem is quite complicated, well i am suggesting you some more solution which may fix up the Lens Error:-
First of all if your camera allows you to work for minute then try finding and selecting the "factory reset" option to set your
camera back to its original factory condition. On some Canon cameras,
this requires holding the menu button down with the camera powered on
for up to 10 seconds. However note that a lens error might sometimes
override the reset option, and thus the option might not appear. So if you find the option then by resetting your camera to Factory Setting may fix the problem
If problem is still there then Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install
the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it
may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error
E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card
installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last
time, This may also solve the problem
Mostly Lens Error is also happens when Lens Barrel is out of position so Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button.
The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is
extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their
slots and it may fix the problem
If problem is still there then there are some other solution too which remove the lens error but all of then are technical and if you try to follow them you enter into the realm of potentially damaging your camera. There is definitely some risk in them, So i recommend that if your camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker or service provider. It will solve your problem quite easily.
I hope this solution helps you and you have clear picture in your mind.
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind or if your camera is out of warranty and you can try some risky solutions.
Sir/Ma'am, Your Rating as Five Stars for this solution and Words of appreciation as Feedback for me will be really esteemed
Thank You for taking my service
